By proposing and exploring a set of complimentary and cohesive metrics, meant to describe both the grip available from the tires and the comfort of the occupants, this research seeks to modernize suspension tuning efforts. The product of this research is a set of three metrics which will allow suspension engineers to quantify the performance of a suspension in terms of its ability to achieve good grip with the road surface, and to provide the occupants with a comfortable ride.
